Canada 1960 CE
Canada now has complete independence from Britain.
What is happening in Canada in 1960CE
Canada entered World War 1 in 1914, and her troops played a major part in the fighting. After the war, by the terms of the Statute of Westminster in 1931, Britain’s dominions became sovereign states within the British Commonwealth, of equal status with Britain. They continued to share the British monarch as their head of state.
By this time, Canada was experiencing the Great Depression of the 1930s, which, as elsewhere, only really ended with the coming of World War 2. As in World War 1, Canada shared with Britain the burdens of war from beginning to end, and her forces participated in all theatres of the war. Canadian airmen were to be found amongst the RAF airmen in the Battle of Britain, and the Royal Canadian Navy played an invaluable role in keeping the convoy lanes open in the Atlantic.
Since the war, Canada has been an integral part of NATO. In 1949, Newfoundland, hitherto an independent member of the British Empire, joined Canada.
